I wonder if someone could help me out here.
I basically use my laptop, a presonous firebox, Ivory, Cubase LE, and Finale, but the main reason a bought all this gear was to use the pianos from Ivory. I sold my Yamaha Motif 6 to buy this gear.
The laptop was working relativelly fine with the Yamaha 7ft, without the foot pedals and other things, but I couldn't run the Steinway or the Bosend. without having problems. So I bought me a new Dell Laptop thinking it would solve my problems just to find it is worse than the old, slower computer.
My new Dell has this configuration:
120 GB HD
3 GB RAM
Intel Core 2 Duo
I instaled the Presonous Firebox first, than I installed Cubase, and last I instaled Ivory, could that be my problem, the order of instalation?
I use from the Firebox to the laptop a 4 pin firewire they say is a firewire 400, and I heard that the firewire 800 is best, could that be the problem?
Could I be having problems fixing my latency, or sample rates, or buffer size configurations?
My HD has 50 GB of free space, and it does not seem like the problem is memory, when I play the piano and it starts cutting off the "slow disk" message doesn't show up but the red light blinks on the firebox very rappidly.
I downloded from Synthogy's site the VST Standalone version, could it be that I need the RTA version?
Thank you very much,
